I was 3 years old when this show happened... Not a big fan of the generic "Space" of later shows I attended but don't see how this one could be knocked. The whole set was great and high energy and the space was rhythmic and stylistically perfect for Dark Star. I gotta find the rest of this show!

This is why they invented drums and electric guitars.
Subject: Dark Star to dream on...
This is one of those Dark Stars that just builds,and takes you there,I had not heard this one in quite a while, thanks to the good folks at Archive.. a real nice clean tape.. a great spacey dreamy, trippy version here..the rest of the set cooks,,an amazing band,, they truly had no equal. especially the years from 69> 73.. this show is al there thanks again,, sweet dreams indeed.. shall we go..
Subject: Don't let the space distract you
This Dark Star should not be faulted for its slow start or the very annoying aimless space after the first verse of vocals. If you just don't care for space, skip ahead to about 9.5 minutes into the track before you pass judgement. Based on the last 12 minutes this will be one of your favorite Dark Stars. It cooks!
And to uroboros - you're right. I was then, but I'm not now, and while it annoys me to listen to space jam on my stereo, the last part of this jam gives me great flash backs!
Subject: Never better!
I am grateful to have learned of this set from the staff picks at archive.org. Simply put, the Grateful Dead of any era doesn't get better than this. Incredible, surprising, and over the top! This sequence is the best music I've heard from the Dead in a very long time. A jam for the ages, and you won't find me saying that any where else. I'm very picky, and this gets my highest reward.
Subject: Dark Star
This has slowly become my hands-down favorite Dark Star. It just sprawls and although Jerry is surely in top-form I think Phil really carries the day here. the fuzzed out interlude is priceless...about thirty years ahead of its time.
Subject: "I Said Fuck!!"
So did I, Pigepen, So did I...
In the 80's, noise-rock bands like Sonic Youth were considered 'pioneering' but listen to this Dark Star, especially around the 13 min. mark and hear the Dead doing the exact same more than 20 years earlier. They were truly doing something unique.
Excellent NFA as well with a brief China Cat jam and a Mountain Jam noodle as well.
Great performance all around.
Beautiful Dark Star, I have the tape for this one and its nice to hear a kinder sounding version presented here.

And I mean awesome!
Subject: turn on your lovelight
Bobby: "Pigpen, did you just say f@ck?"
hahaha GREAT show, EXCELLENT stage banter, what more could you ask?
Note to self:
This DarkStar goes everywhere ... I think it is my favorite even though it starts out from nothing ...
....this is excellent....
... The trick is staying alive...

The time sig in the middle of that DS reminds me of the guy that did the music for the CB Christmas.
3 Stars...take a point away for BW abrupt interjection....
though, BW plainly balanced JG and PL, in general.
Subject: The BOYS
Not for nuthin, I first saw the DEAD in 67, This site says it all. Great Music. Great Memories and, LOTS i don't remember !!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME MEMORIES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: this is why i don't get tired
Fantastic sound of this DARK STAR keeps me interested in exploring the music that this band made so long ago. The pace of this version is really good for anyone who is in the slow lane.
Must have been a great night to join the band in that space.
Subject: DARK STARRRRR
Some one mentioned china cat in the not fade away at 16 30 of the dark star bobby whips out that rhythmic jam during the later longer china-riders, totally blew me away when I heard it.
Subject: maybe the MOST beautiful Dark Star...
awesome, awesome show!... I've listened to so many many Dark Stars, and I always come back to this one as the finest when I want to relax and get carried away from the everyday - it's super psychy, yet a bit mellow, spacey, intense... ..VISUAL! kind of melancholy at first, but builds to one of the most emotive DS of all... Jimi died just two days before this - [it was only back on the 69-70 New Year's that some of the greatest recordings of ALL TIME were made...not just the Dead's show, but just listen again to Band of Gypsys do 'Machine Gun' live]
tonight Jerry's CRUISIN! Bobby's rhythm playing will drop your jaw... (great sample at about 19:40)... the boys just tumble over one another like little kids swimming in the sky and then come back together and parachute down... this one will tickle your brain and leave you in a much better place when you land 25 mins and 24 secs later...WOW!
if you were tripping at the show it might have not seemed aimless. Cool Dark Star
During NFA Garcia plays licks of ChinaCat, as well as the Youngbloods' "Darkness Darkness"(thier "Get Together" is also the exit music). Everything about this recording is phenomenal!
Subject: Great Show for Sure
I attended the next night - Sept. 20, 1970. Any copies of that night out there?
Subject: Dark Star
One of the cleanest stars out there. Not too much noise and plenty of floating jams that seem to wash away the time. 25 minutes flies by and leads into a nice St. Stephen. Gotta love Pig. He knows just what to say.
The mighty PIG setting those kids straight.
Keep your hands outta your pocket and TCB
Wait unil 4/29/71 Midnight Hour.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" September 9, 1970, at the Fillmore East, NYC, New York, U.S.A.
"Superduper 70' Soundboard"
This recording is 39 years old as of this review, and it sounds like it was recorded today.
Fantastic Fillmore East show. 5 Stars for the mix, recording, performance & transfer.
Thank you for sharing this show with us Mr. Chuck Renyolds.
I recommend clicking on "check for other copies" and get all of em', I did.
In my opinion the most loving, loyal, excited crowds the GRATEFUL DEAD ever played in front of were the New York City crowds and they are only second to the San Francisco hometown crowds.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1970 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

PS: I miss 1970...
PSS: After a lengthy encore applause, Phil comes out and tells the crowd Garcia and Bobby can't continue one has a hand cramp, the others voice is out, the NYC crowd screams for more...(what else are they gonna do?) so Pigpen says: "Wait a minute, wait a minute...why don't you guys go home and "f@#k somebody? And they do...lol that's how you kids got here...lmao
Subject: 5 star
And the china cat in the middle of Not Fade...Lots of fun!
What a sublime set of music this is.
